Reviews

Very efficiently run festival. The volunteers are wonderful and very accommodating. Music mix is great. Love it! See you next year.
Really well organized! Line ups were reasonable, beer was great, volunteers were excellent. Proud to live in Kemptville with the quality of this event!
We were extremely impressed with the total organization of the festival. There were few lineups, clean, well maintained facilities, few or no lineups at all. Excellent Job! Well Done.
I would not change anything. Location and organization were both very good. And the price is reasonable....good value for money.
It was the best time I have had in a very long time !!
This is the best organized festival I've been to in a long time. Such a nice site and kept clean. More than enough washrooms
One of the best organized festivals I've been to. Keep up the good work! Volunteers were very friendly and helpful. No complaints.
Absolutely fantastic time! The volunteers were exceptional, an extremely well organized event. Great festival! Well managed and perfect venue for music. Thanks!
All of us, including our guest from NY State truly enjoyed the whole experience. Getting there and parking was super easy, use of lawn chairs at the stage area no problem, sound system fantastic, and volunteers all helpful. Even the police presence was welcome and not over done in any way. Bravo. Immediately following the event, I did write a letter to the Ottawa Citizen entitled Kudos to Kemptville, but unfortunately it was not published.
I love concerts, and have been to quite a few in my life. I enjoyed your festival so much I have been telling all my friends. Most fun of the summer, thank you so much-:)
Great venue and best value for the money for the whole family and friends! Keep up the great work !!
We were impressed with how clean everything was, especially the washrooms! Awesome job!
This was the first time my husband and I attended and we were very impressed with the professionalism of everyone and will definitely be back. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make it such a success.

Great event, been every year and it just keeps getting better!
Everyone is doing an excellent job of putting Kemptville on the map and the musical choices and star participation, is greatly appreciated.
This is a very well organized festival with helpful volunteers and well selected performers. Looking forward to 2018.
We were only there for one day (Saturday), but the location; venue; performers; volunteers; food; drinks; ambiance and weather were all great. One of our best music event experiences. Thanks!
It was awesome, very well organized, wonderful group of people willing to help, our first time there, will definitely be back !! Great job
From what my Wife & I experienced , being first timers. Seemed to be very well organized . And we enjoyed the whole evening, along with friends.
I have been coming since the beginning and you guys get better every year
A great event. The sound system and video were remarkable for an outdoor event. Location was perfect in every respect - parking, space, the contour of the field allowing a clear view. The good-natured crowd and helpers. Good selection of food vendors. Very reasonably priced tickets. A example of how an event should be run.
It was our first year attending as we had moved away for a few years - and we were super impressed with the festival! Well done!! Can't wait for next year!
Very well run was so impressed by the grounds, staff and organization. Well done!!
EXCELLENT EVENT. CLEAN, GOOD FOOD AND OVER EXCELLENT GROUNDS
Just a fabulous time!! Great work, and we'll see you next year :)
My first time and loved the festival! Great music... great prices... great location
It would have been good to have washrooms on both sides of the field so the walk wasn't so far.
Great festival!!
Had a great time, Burton Cummings was great & everything went well. Great night out.
Awesome festival. Will definitely plan on attending next year with some friends !
You do a great job. I am proud to be a part of it,and brag about the festival to friends and relatives.
It was the best outdoor music festival I've been to yet this year!

very nice event - I only came for Burton Cummings this time, next year I would like to spend more time. Beautiful setting, wonderful volunteers. Entirely terrific weekend!

Excellent access for wheelchairs and elderly

We really enjoy this event and look forward to it next year. The big part of the successful weekend are the volunteers working at the show and those organizing the event. It is well run and everyone is so pleasant to talk with.

It was the best live music event I have ever attended. The crowd was great and the staff were polite and friendly.

Very impressed with the comfort stations and overall cleanliness. Thanks!!

When I learned about it I told that to my friends from Ottawa who joined me for the show

Great festival - great opportunity and definitely will be back and will recommend to others.

I'll need a bigger house for all the friends that want to stay here during the festival!

We loved the relaxed atmosphere. We could sit and enjoy the performances and wander around the grounds checking out the various booths. Staff were friendly and helpful

Very well done. Policing was excellent. Traffic was extremely well controlled.

Burton Cummings put on the best live performance that I have ever seen!!

We went on Thursday & Saturday night and will consider the whole weekend next year. We had such a good time!

We are already promoting the festival to family and friends from near and far.

The food and drink was well chosen. The venue was beautiful. In short, we were very impressed and we will be back.
Venue is excellent. Everything really well organized. Volunteers very helpful and friendly.
Nice venue for the concert and well set-up. Lots of volunteers and place was kept clean. Great selection of bands especially Saturday night.

Your volunteers were excellent! Made us feel very special. The VIP tickets were great and the line-up for music was awesome. Thanks so much.

What a lovely area and a great festival! Looking forward to attending again next year.

It was an amazing experience and we are telling everyone we know to come out next year!!!! Thanks, Kemptville - you all deserve to be very proud of yourselves and your community!!!!

We had vip tickets and attended all 3 days....just loved it. Clean, spacious, great perks for vip ticket, orderly but really fun! Great lineup!!

The show & venue were great !!

Outstanding volunteers. The best I've ever encountered.

I love your festival: the lineup was varied, good food, lovely volunteers. I needed accessible parking and it was so close I wanted to hug someone as this has been a big issue at other festivals. The stage and sound were excellent and the acts were on time.

the volunteers did a super job! The people i came into contact with were so nice and seemed to be enjoying their time there... great job!!!

I have been to many music festivals over the years and Kemptville Live was probably the most organized that I have been to. Good job by all volunteers.

We were so impressed with how well organized and punctual everything was. Starting from finding one of the parking lots shown on your website, catching the shuttle bus to the grounds, and being greeted to the event. Marvellous! We felt like a million bucks! Keep up the good work! It's the Best Fest!

Positive experience. Looked like organizers had done a good job. Carry on!

Love the Roadhammers and Monkey Junk! Even in the rain - I would go again just to see these groups... Great Festival... loved it!

We had a great time at the show on Sunday. Thank you for putting on the festival. It was wonderful to see folks out enjoying the music.

Great work and hope to see you again. We definitely would put this in event in a list of too GREAT AND DO AGAIN!!! Thanks Tammy and Glenn Ross

This was a fabulous festival, great acts, wonderful atmosphere and terrific security to keep a safe atmosphere. Congrats to all who organized it, worked it, and volunteered. It was a summer highlight for sure. Looking forward to next year!

Great experience, a little far to walk from the event but weather was great so not that bad. Shuttle was slower than walking so we walked. Great concert. Tom Cochrane still rocks!! :)

Wonderful job to all of the volunteers!!! Had so much fun with bus personell! Directions were bang on too!

Thanks so much for an excellent weekend of music and community!

Great music variety and talent. Too many excellent performers to list. Good selection of food vendors. Clean site and well organized.

The volunteers did a fabulous job!

The friendliest town I have ever visited. Your residents are just super nice.

Great job! Great Venue! Very organized

The staff and volunteers were fantastic ,helpful and a joy to talk with.

We were there to see Tom Cochrane.....awesome! Everything seemed well organized and there was plenty of volunteer presence to ensure things ran smoothly....great job!

Great job overall and many thanks for all the hard work

Great group of volunteers, amazing selection of food, loved the picnic tables & bathrooms were nice & clean… looking forward to more!

I am (still) really impressed by how organized this festival was. I love the location and the fact that you had that tent with all of the picnic tables with a great view of the stage. I really appreciated it in the pouring rain on Saturday. The line-up was awesome too! Everyone was so nice & I will recommend it everyone!

People working there were terrific, great job by them. Over all we were very impressed especially considering that this was your first year. Super! Looking forward to next year. Cheers!

Great price, venue & lineup!

This was the best festival I have been to in years. My hats off to the organizers and to the volunteers. You guys are very proud of your city. Thanks.

I have already booked the same weekend for next year in order to take in the entire festival. Thanks for doing a great job with this years event.

The volunteers were great, always went above and beyond…

We had a fantastic time and will definetly return next year!??

Everything was done well. No need to change a thing.

Thank you for the great event!

The porta potties were very clean and the hand washing stations were kept clean as well.. We rented a canoe and paddled down the river which was easy and fun. Next year we plan to sample the food at Salamanders and to attend the Sunday farmer's market. The food trucks were handy and the one we tried, Thai was very good.

Good atmosphere, nice people, good venue, was very pleased with everything.

Less rain would be nice. Could you work on that for next year? Kidding - it was great. Nice that there was a tent available though.

Really enjoyed the folk music day.

Great work everyone!!

Very pleasent experience. Job well done!!

YOU ROCKED IT!!!

Really enjoyed the line up and pace of Saturday. Thank you.

WE had a great time . THE VIP was the best buy.

Took full advantage of the shuttle system….. On the whole, it was a fantastic festival and look forward to next year.

For a first time festival, very well organized and smoothly executed. Well done!

Great music, location, organization, parking, security, and friendly staff. Perfect as is !

The low-key friendly nature of the festival was great. Everything worked well…parking, food services, sanitation etc.

All staff was awesome and the music lineup was awesome as well. Too bad the weather was not to par. Very good job done by all!!!

This was by far the best organized outdoor festival I have ever been to. You had places to stand when it was pouring rain. I would definitely go back next year.

Watched Tom Cochrane. Great show, good times. Well done

Absolutely best first effort. Please keep up the great work. The location was amazing clean. Food was excellent. Beer was awesome. The volunteers especially at the disabled entrance made the experience so special. Kudos to all volunteers.

I think it was a great festival. The venue was very nice and all the volunteers were wonderful. One of the best festivals I've been to, and I have been to many....

The volunteers were exceptional. My brother is in a wheelchair and we were treated like VIP. Congratulations on an excellent job. We will be getting weekend passes next year. We were so excited to see Murray McLaughlan and everything you did surpassed our expectations. Can't wait til next year.

Great first year and was impressed with the site and organization.
